MK People’s Awards- Martin Lawrence announced as Sport Award winner

Martin Lawrence, founder and chairman of Redway Runners, was this week presented with the People’s Award for Sport for Milton Keynes.

The inaugural People’s Awards, held in the 50th year of Milton Keynes, celebrate and honour the outstanding achievements of community champions who willingly help others and make Milton Keynes a great place to be.

Martin humbly accepted his award, saying:

“A lot of work goes on behind the scenes to make sure everything [Redway Runners] do works well, so much of it could not happen without all the people that help in so many ways. This is an award for the whole club. It is just an amazing story of how the club has developed and grown over the years.”

As part of the awards BBC Three Counties made a short video which was shown at the awards which can be viewed here:


Redway Runners Social Evening at MK Lightning Ice Hockey – Saturday 13 January 2018

For the fourth year running we are organising a Redway Runner Social evening to watch the Milton Keynes Lightning ice hockey team.  The match is on Saturday 13 January 2018 versus the Dundee Stars.  The game starts at 7pm at the ice rink just behind “Argos” and “Toys R Us” near MK Central Station. MK Lightning have moved up to the top division of UK ice hockey (the Elite League).  They are doing surprisingly well against the country’s best with a rebuilt team that play fast, exciting hockey.  Let’s see if we can beat the 125 who attended last year!

We have managed to get an excellent discount on ticket prices.  Adults will cost £13 (instead of the normal £18) and children under 16 years of age will be charged at £5.  Those who have never been to ice hockey before are in for an evening of a fast paced, hard hitting game with the odd fight here and there!  The game will be over at about 9.15pm.  There is a splendid bar and good food and beverage facilities.  We will all be seated in a block together which will add to the fun.  To help those unfamiliar with ice hockey, I will circulate some basic information on what the game is all about just before the evening.

To book your seats please can you let Kevin Orchard ( know how many tickets you would like?  Bank transfers to Redway Runners account:

  • Sort code 301553
  • Number 42390360
  • Name; Redway Runners
  • (reference “ice hockey” please)

or a cheque (payable to ‘Redway Runners’) to Martin will secure your seats. Absolute closing date will be Wednesday 10 January at 5pm.

If anybody fancies it, we can skate for free after the game until 11pm, you just need to pay for skate hire on the night at £2.50 each.  For those not up for a bit of skating we will move over to Wetherspoons at 171 Midsummer Boulevard for a drink or two after the game.
